2:12 pm
amendments to this legislation and want to talk about those. after noticeable concerns by the members of the entertainment commission as well as the san francisco police department i set out to update the codes and hopefully make things easier for small businesses. the legislation makes a distinction between bars that have arcadia games like a laundromat that have arcadia games the circumstances are different for bars and the entertainment commission want to be able to engage with those bars on their good neighbor policy. a bar can have one game without a permit but more than that a permit needed. at the land use committee supervisor kim offered an amendment that said a bar can have up to four games i
2:13 pm
whooerldz support they are amendment we passed that, however, the entertainment commission staff and police department expressed some concerns to this change namely they were urban comfortable with the idea of having bars with 2 or more or cascade games being exempted it is better than we were proposing to pass specifically the amendments i'm offering about maintain the exemption for non-bars up to 10 games and allow bars to have one gavin newsom without a permit and streamlines the progression for bars between 2 and 10 games. those bars will be able to apply for a staff level permit issued by entertainment commission director or his or her representative the small business owner will not have to
2:14 pm
go before the committee and they will also not be required to pay the $740 permit fee application fee to those particular businesses with no more than 10 games we drafted the bill to make the process as quickly and painful as possible the staff level permit all the time this is a relating new structure for the entertainment commission they currently issue staff level temporary permits but this better safe than sorry will be the first over the counter permit for a business in the a great step forward in approving the cumbersome and expensive process. my amendments also clarify a couple of procedural items rewarding how the entertainment commission permits are
2:15 pm
considered and appealed the amendments reduce the burden while addressing the police department concerns with oversight and the current version bars with 5 to 10 games will have to pay the seven hundred plus now a staff level permit for freebie submitting those to the entertainment commission during the recess we were voting amazing to support the legislation i want to thank a lot of folks in the entertainment commission that explained and gave me a perspective of how they've been a support in having small business owners having great relationships with the neighborhood pr redd man of the san francisco police department and the small business

2:19 pm
finding. >> same house, same call? this ordinance is passed on the first reading colleagues, we don't have any 2:30 accomodation sins we have a couple of 3:30 accommodations roll call vote first to introduce new business supervisor wiener. >> thank you madam clerk and i have a few today. first, i am introducing a hearing request recommending to the city's policies for the and retrieval of stolen vehicles colleagues i'm sure we get contacted someone's car is stolen and dumped in the city and ultimately toad and the person that has done nothing's wrong ends up be responsible for
2:20 pm
hundreds of thousands i have dollars in storage fees and so forth currently when an officer finds a stolen vehicle the person will have 20 minutes to come to the scene is retrieve the cars obviously most people are not going to be able to do that it gets toad and if you're a san francisco resident you have a 4 hour embrace period and not pay storage fees sometimes, people learn about it days or weeks after the fact and their fees end up being huge sometimes more than the value of the car and then the car is auctioned off. so it's not an acceptable situation we're treating people who have been victims of crime we're treating them as if
2:21 pm
they've done something wrong it's not appropriate for the city to be treating it's residents or visitor of the city or people who live elsewhere where their cars are dumped in san francisco so call an auto return or the police department or mta to get on the record the fee schedule and the actual policies and practices of the various agencies in terms of dealing with people who's cars have been stolen and toad it comes up for renegotiation next year. actually, i'm a fan of auto return i think that auto return has cleaned up a problematic situation with the city's contracts but this contract is being negotiated it has to take a look at the fact that owners
2:22 pm
don't be treated wrongly that will be our responsibility to send the message it will come back to the board of supervisors without fees for people's cars who have been stolen and toad >> i have to memoriams first from nancy roderick who is a resident of noah valley and a she was a new year's eve native that passed away on august 5th and graduated locally and was active in new year's eve of the parish and helped found the daycare center was married to bob rod i can who was the president of the professional association and the two have
2:23 pm
three children so nancy was someone who was universally admired in the neighborhood and her passing is a tragedy another one is a sad situation. the second memoriam is - my apologies. my second memoriam is for bryan higgins who also known in the community as feather who was american people active member of the fairies he was liked in the community and lived in san francisco for about 5 years worked at roman beggars deli and he was attacked and render unconscious on august 10th in the hospital for 3 days before
2:24 pm
we passed away before no one knew probation officer who feather was he was identified and the investigation is ongoing we don't know what happened it's a video it's showing it feather was assaulted and this attack has a lot of people on edge in the neighborhood. the castro upper market area has been for many, many years a haven for the lgbt community we have people being attacked and dying in our neighborhoods. it is really reminds us even though this neighborhood is a russian bad things happen we have to be having any left-hand turn and work hard to keep folks safe for the lgbt community and everyone the rest i'll submit >> thank you, supervisor

2:26 pm
resistance of bacteria that gets into our cattle and the use of abandoning the use of no non-therapyic will reduce the bacteria into our food and urging the congress to pass legislation. following the democratic central committee vote on the neutral cash tax i urge the congress to pass the carbon tax the way the tax will work with the attacks on the economic stream we're at the port of the united states the tax on carbon and fossil fuels but the neutral side of the tax will be the tax credit to the middle-class and working

2:29 pm
to talk about a very important issue we've heard a lot about in the last few weeks the issue the crisis that is facing our country as we have tens of thousands of children fleeing violence in mexico and el salvador. gangs have effectively taken over parts of those criticize many of those towns and cities in those countries are run by those gangs to the extent that many parents are unfortunately making the impossible decision to send their kids on a very dangers journey from those countries to the itself. they're known as the could i do not who's job is to bring the child over to the united states
2:30 pm
about 63 thousand kids have been apprehend in the first, few months alone and released to a custody to their friends or family in the san francisco bay area. when this occurs the child's status is jaurthd and i think that when the history of the obama administration was written this is one of those saddest moments in the tenure of this president because it is truly a crisis that was created by this market values the idea of competently that he had thousands of those cases without insuring that those kids each one of those cases there are
